How To – Change Your Whole House Water Filter

One of the most common plumbing items we sell to homeowners are our cartridge style whole house water filters. Because so many homes have these filters it is very common for us to be asked “How do I change this water filter?”. This post should help you properly change your water filter without to much trouble and while staying dry!

1. Figuring out the style of filter you have.

We sell two types of cartridge style filters so first you need to decide which you have as the steps are a little different for both. The pictures below show the two styles.

Style 1: A basic filter with NO valve in head. These filters have a red pressure relief button on the top.

Style 2: A valve in head filter. These filters have a valve built into the head so that you can turn the water to “On”, “Off”, or “Bypass”

2. Cutting the water off and releasing pressure.

Filter style 1: There should be a valve somewhere before the filter is installed. If it is not close by you may need to turn the water off to the whole house.
Filter style 2: With this filter you do not have to cut the water off but doing so can relieve some pressure and make it easier to turn the filter to bypass.

3.  Removing the clear filter housing.

Unscrew housing. (Sometimes it can be hard to get the housing off. Use the wrench that came with the filter or a strap wrench.) Remove large O-ring, wipe it clean, and set aside. Many people do not realize that the black O-ring is in the threads of the filter. Don’t throw the O-ring our with the filter.

4.  Removing the old filter and cleaning [...]

8 Best Home Owner Tips For Cold Weather

First, It is always a good idea to insulate any exposed pipes. Key places to look: the attic, crawl spaces, outside walls or unfinished basements. When it comes to insulation more insulation means more protection. Use blanket insulation, insulation strips and foam pipe insulation.
Be on the lookout for cracks or crevices where air can get in. Air movement is the number one cause of frozen pipes in pump houses, crawl spaces, and basements. If you find any, insulate well or use caulk or Great Stuff foam sealant to fill the cracks.
If the temperatures are dropping extremely low allow your water to drip out of a couple of faucets. By allowing the faucets to drip, you are reducing the pressure behind any ice that may have built up. If the dripping ceases leave the faucets open. There may be a section of frozen pipe, but there will be no pressure built up behind it to make it burst.
If pipes are on an outside wall in a cabinet they may be at risk for freezing. Here is an easy fix: open any cabinet doors that house piping. Frozen pipes can be prevented by letting a room’s warmer air reach them.
Don’t turn down the thermostat, especially at night. Most people like to allow the temperature in the house to lower and snuggle up with more blankets. The coldest times tend to be through the night so make sure you have significant heat in the house while you sleep.
Before temperatures drop, disconnect all garden hoses and drain the water from the short pipe that leads to the outside tap. Make sure to install a outside spigot with a vacuum breaker to prevent the faucet [...]

Water Saving Tips

Water is something that a lot of us do not think of as a limited resource. It is so easy to just turn on a tap and get a glass of water. We think that because it is being recycled through the earths natural water cycle and so much of the Earth is covered with water that we don’t need to be concerned.
However, less than 1% of water on Earth can be used becuase the rest of the planets water is salty or frozen. Saving water is good for not only your wallet but also the earth, your family, and your community. Here are some tips for saving water and how much water you will save daily:

Replace higher flow showerheads (those installed prior to 1993) with low flow showerheads (5 Gallons)
Shorten your shower time by 2 minutes (5 Gallons)
Fill the bathtub only half full when taking a bath (5 Gallons)
Fix leaking toilets (2 Gallons)
Replace older, inefficient toilets (those installed prior to 1993) (8 Gallons)
Fix dripping faucets (2 Gallons)
Replace high flow sink aerators with low flow sink aerators (4 Gallons)
Turn off the water while brushing your teeth (2 Gallons)
Don’t leave the water running while shaving (4 Gallons)
Scraping instead of rinsing your dishes by hand before putting them in the dishwasher (6 Gallons)
Limit dishwashing to one full load a day or fewer (2 Gallons)
Make a compost pile instead of using the garbage disposal (2 Gallons)
Keep a pitcher of cold water to drink in the fridge instead of running the faucet (4 Gallons)
Replace washing machine with high efficiency EnergyStar model (5 Gallons)
Cut back by one load of laundry a week (4 Gallons)
